As I see it

Let’s talk a little more about children separated from their parents, not by American Border Patrols or ICE.

While in Lima, Peru, I found out that many children are left on the streets to fend for themselves simply because their families can no longer feed them. In Lima these children are called Piranhas, what sounds like a horrid name for children who are now orphaned by their parents and trying to survive on the streets.

Try to picture your own little four or five-year-old child trying to survive on the streets of a city when they have no food or water. How do they do it? Well, they are forced to scavenge for food or steal whatever they can find. They also resort to is selling their little bodies. There is always an amoral or immoral someone around the corner who is willing to help them out. Imagine that. Where is that American Sniper when you need him?
This also happens in the United States of America. I cried after leaving a classroom of beautiful 12 to 14-year-old little girls rescued from the streets of Phoenix, Arizona. At the time, about 135 little sex trade workers had been rescued from the streets. They now reside in the Dream Center.
Why aren’t all our liberals on the street trying to help American children? It just is not politically expedient to say you saved a little American sex trade worker and you can’t blame that on the Conservatives can you?
Naw, nothing sexy about that is there. Especially not when you can stand around the American-Mexican border and bitch about our protectors (American Border Patrol, National Guard, ICE, and American Soldiers) trying to ‘destroy’ our  country by keeping illegals out.
These same people would also want to do away with the police forces until it is they who are savaged by some of the beasts that exist in our society.
Please stay tuned and let me share what God has taught me in my travels. If you would like to read my story, the book is available on Amazon: God’s Tiniest Angel and the Last Unicorn. Again, this is the Maverick Doctor trying to change healthcare in America.
